EBA updated the Single Rulebook question and answer (Q&A) tool with answers to thirty-three questions. One answer provides clarification regarding the definition of an investment firm under the Capital Requirements Regulation while thirty-two answers address queries regarding various aspects of supervisory reporting by banks.
The overall objective of the Q&A tool is to ensure consistent and effective application of the new regulatory framework across the Single Market. Institutions, supervisors, and other stakeholders can use the Single Rulebook Q&A tool for submitting questions on certain EU regulations and directives. These regulations and directives include the revised Capital Requirements Directive 5 (CRD 5), the revised Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR 2), the revised Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD 2), the Securitization Regulation, the Deposit Guarantee Schemes Directive (DGSD), the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD), the Payment Services Directive (PSD) 2, and the related technical standards that EBA has developed and adopted.
